Seven men arrested on drug charges

County police have charged four Glen Burnie men and a Baltimore man with possession of PCP with intent to distribute in two separate incidents. They also charged two others with possession of the drug in one of those incidents.

In one case, four men were arrested Tuesday night at a Shell station in the 7900 block of Ritchie Highway by a police officer who investigated what he said was "suspicious activity" near a 1981 Buick on the lot.

The officer smelled a strong odor of PCP coming from inside the vehicle. He said he searched the driver of the car and found a vanilla extract bottle containing suspected PCP, then saw a passenger place a mason jar near the rear of the car. The jar contained parsley flakes mixed with suspected PCP, police said.

John Edward Thorn, 20, of the 300 block of Valiant Circle and Raymond Knapp, 26, of the 1600 block of Tieman Drive were charged with possession with intent to distribute PCP. Paul Reddin, 29, of the 1500 block of Jupp Road and Vance Dykhuis, 20, of the 7800 block of Twin Ridge Drive were charged with possession of the drug.

In the second case, police, acting on a tip, followed a 1979 Camaro to Prince George's County, where they saw the occupants buy suspected PCP, then back to Anne Arundel County, where they stopped the vehicle.

Police found 4 ounces of suspected liquid PCP in the car.

Charged with possession with intent to distribute PCP were David Rexroad, 25, of the 500 block of Kent Circle in Glen Burnie; John Leonard Creel Jr., 25, of the 900 block of Phylen Court in Glen Burnie; and Darnell Spence, 28, of the 3900 block of Pascal Ave. in Baltimore.

Student charged with sex offense

A 15-year-old Marley Middle School student was charged with assault and battery and a fourth-degree sex offense after he reportedly fondled a 14-year-old girl during a bus ride home from the school.

The youth, who is being charged as a juvenile, allegedly touched the girl, without her consent, as the two rode home from school Monday about 2:30 p.m.

The girl told police the boy sat down next to her on the bus and began kissing her on the lips. The girl protested, but the youth began to fondle her.

Even though the girl continued to protest, she said the teen-ager continued to touch her until they both exited the bus and returned to their homes.
